Doing this should lessen your chances of getting a UTI

Urinary tract infections hurt. Simple as.

If there was a way around ever contracting one again, I would happily take it.

However, the expert opinion differs considerably, and most health professionals advise peeing post-sex instead.

The reasoning behind this is that during sex, bacteria can get into your urethra.

However, the good news is that if you pee after the deed is done, there's a good chance you'll flush the aforementioned bacteria back out.

Speaking to Yahoo News, David Kaufman, an urologist based in New York City, said peeing before sex "“is the No.1 cause of post-coital urinary tract infections, also known as honeymoon cystitis".

So there you have it, pee after sex and NOT before.
